More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that controls the gTLDs, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this TLD is that all websites that use it should comply with certain rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be created to be accessed correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have raised some worries considering the fact that the generic top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to open a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be created in such a way as to be accessed by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Due to the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can acquire a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer code from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
